A Back To School Message From PTO
Dear NCS and Friends of PTO,
I hope you enjoyed your summer and made some memorable memories with family and friends. As I reflect on the success of last year and the goals I set forth this time last year, PTO is headed in the right direction. We reached our fundraising goal of 20,000, participation in our reward programs continue to boost our bottom line, and most importantly, a new crop of leaders are beginning to emerge as evident by our 2016-17 PTO Board. I like to welcome Mary Foltz and Audrey Heist who join me (Jill Asuncion) and returning Board Members Belinda Notaro, Michele Carty, and Randi Wall. We introduced as couple new events, the Sweetheart and Knight Dances which proved to be quite successful and very special.
The challenge we face this year is managing the merger of NEF (Northfield Education Foundation)with PTO. As of July 1, 2016, NEF no longer exist in name but operates under the umbrella of PTO. We debated long and hard on how to streamline PTO to be able to accommodate the programs of NEF as well as our own agenda. This will leave PTO with very little down time if at all. Not only will we need the manpower and volunteer hours to accomplish this but the monetary demands of ONE organization supporting the work of TWO are significant. But in true Thunderbird spirit , I am confident we can do this together.
I hope all of you will welcome our new Superintendent, Mr. Pete Bretones and wish him well as he begins his journey at the helm of NCS. You will have an opportunity to Meet and Greet Mr. Bretones at NCS PTO Rita's Night on September 15th. I'm sure he will be a great compliment to our very supportive Administration, Faculty, and Staff.
I implore you to "Get To Know Your PTO." The Month of September kicks off our Membership Drive. Please READ thru and PRINT OUT our PTO Back To School Packet that is loaded with information and forms. Register your email with us and when you get the email don't delete it - read it! PTO's monthly Newsletter will keep you up to date on upcoming events.

Look for these logos on the products you buy and send them in to your child's Teacher or to the Elementary and Middle school Offices. There is also a collection box by the Elementary Office. Over $4,000.00 was earned last year alone! Throughout the year, Our Box top Committee will hold contest to see which class or grade collects the most labels. There is a reward for all that hard work so keep on clipping! See the links on our PTO page for more information.
